extreamly personalized, family like, sympatetic, a lesson in habitat, in the midle of a real life neighborhood with shops, daily life; very secure, free byciles;2 freindly dogs, excellent breakfast with comuter and printing facilities, local cloth amnufacture, metro and buses closeby, forbidden city in walking distance, close to the airport express train (2,5 EURO) station (with taxi to the train station in 10 minutes for 1 euro!) well, the package to visite the great wall, though not epensive (25-35 euro) includes a lot of comulsory shop factories......the question below cannot be answered, because of your site, no client commentaries appear, which is a petty!!!!
The gardens of Garden Hotel were a nice surprise! Rooms are really beautiful. It is an oasis in the heart of the busy city. I could have rated at least 3 stars. I will reccoment it without hesitation. Taxi drivers find difficulties to take you there.
Hotel Staff was wonderful with fluent English and very quick response. Atmosphere and Location was one of the best in Beijing. You will regret if you do not know this hotel. I strongly recommend this hotel to stay. Locking the door is a little difficult to me.
Very pretty places and beautiful rooms. Friendly and helpful staff.
it was in a great location and was a very authentic historical hutong hotel. The rooms were modern and clean. The staff was very kind and helpful.
The ywca Garden hotel is a gem. It is a beautifully renovated traditional Chinese courtyard dwellingl occupying a central a location literally a stone's throw from the north end of the pedestrianised section of Wangfujing. The staff are remakably friendly and helpful. The personalized service one gets is a world away from that found in standardized international hotels. The hotel will be quieter once the construction of the adjacent Lotte department store is completed (very soon I expeect)
The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is actually a remodeled traditional Chinese house, but done really nicely. Its location is excellent! Right in the most convenient area. We stayed for 6 days and before we left, we already saw it as our home in Beijing. That's how much all the staff make you feel at home. It will be our only choice from now on when we visit the city again.
The service was excellent, the place is beautiful.
Very friendly and helpful staff, peacful and homely atmosphere, interesting to stay in a Beijing "courtyard house" Only 1 type of rooms with twin beds, larger and nicer rooms only had double beds. Taxis had difficulties finding the hotel but this was resolved by phoning the hotel and ask them to direct the taxi drivers.
The location was perfect for sightseeing and shopping. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was just as explained on the web site. We particulary liked the design and the fact that it was traditional style . It was very cold while we were there but our room was warm and welcoming, for a 2 star hotel we had all facillities including robes and slippers and bottled water replaced every day. The only complaint was the breakfast we took in another hotel on one of the mornings, after the resumed in the garden hotel and were very exceptable
Helpful, friendly, clean, value for money. Organised a good tour for us.
Place is very private and quiet. Staff is helpful and friendly. It is near Wangfujing Street where small "tuk-tuk-like" cars are readily available to bring us back to hotel. Most taxi drivers are not familiar with this location - Lushi Hutong, so will sometimes refuse to take us. The Family Room supposedly for 4 people is rather small - much better to book 2 twin rooms.
nothing The hotel changed the price and room types without notice to customers.Bad service and terrible management.
Very traditional. Dificult to find, but once you know where it is, its ok.
An authentic Chinese style building in a real Hutong. The breakfast was adequate but could be improved.
Loved the local culture and the excellent service. This hotel is very small and goes above and beyond to exceed expectations for everyone staying in this charming little hotel...extremely personal service. Taxis are hard to find that knows how to get to this location even with the printed card they provide for you......You will try a minimum of 3 each time before you get one that can get you home........Small price to pay for such a great experience at the hotel.
Staff lovely, room was comfortable, really interesting location, deluxe room was nice
Historic architecture, location in a hutong, provided or arranged for a car/cab to get to and from the airport, nicely appointed room, internet connection easy to use, very nice staff; quiet and peaceful; tons more character than a chain hotel; handled an unexpected very late arrival with ease Not sure if there was an air conditioner; if not, would need at least a good fan for hot, humid weather
Very pleasant and fothcomming staff, charming interior and good location. Nearly everything was perferct. However, if you come late for breakfast, the selection of food might be a little limited.
The staff were very friendly and tried hard to be helpful. Good broadband service free. Also bicycles free. I spent tow nights in a very poor quality room. Then one night in a good room. THe difference was very great.
quiet surrounding helpful staff
yes, special setting
The hotel was quite pleasant and the staff were very helpful. We found the executive room to be nicely appointed. The breakfast buffet included both Chinese and European selections. We used a hotel driver and car for our trip to the Great Wall. While a little more expensive than tour groups, it provided us with a relaxing trip to the wall. The driver directed us to a great restaurant just before getting MuTianYu that was much cheaper than the tourist spots and severed excellent food.
